Information Collection and use

The American Museum of Natural History does not collect, use, save, or have access to any personal information relating to an identified or identifiable person (such as name and postal or email address) through the OLogy Application.

Though no personal information is collected, used, saved, or accessed through the Ology Application, it may be in the course of a Survey, as described above.”
